This year for WEAAD, the New York City Elder Abuse Center (NYCEAC) will be sharing resources for elder justice professionals daily for 16 days, in a campaign called 16 for 2016 – which you can find on Twitter at #16for2016 or on our Facebook page starting on May 31, 2016. More →
NYCEAC staff are available to provide assistance to professionals interested in developing a multidisciplinary in their community, including providing information on how to present cases; team protocol development; team membership development; case identification; tracking cases; and other issues. NYCEAC currently coordinates the MDT Peer Leadership Group, a monthly meeting with professionals from the five boroughs and Duchess County to help strengthen existing teams and support nascent ones. In addition, NYCEAC partners have helped Westchester County launch an MDT there.
